The word lighthouse conjures images of stormy seas and a beacon leading ships to safety. Tom Ham’s Lighthouse largely fits that motif, leading diners onto a comfy dining deck with views of San Diego’s stellar sunsets and downtown skyline. Tom came to San Diego in the 1950s with a love of California history that still echoes today, thanks to his collection of nautical memorabilia that still hangs throughout the newly remodeled space, which was once a functioning lighthouse, warning sailors of the dangerous bay waters ahead. Despite the dusty history, the dining atmosphere is very much still alive inside, with white tablecloths serving as a backdrop for fresh seafood entrées and fortifying brunch staples.
